L.A. Reid's Farewell Letter To Island Def Jam

L.A. Reid's Farewell Letter To Island Def Jam

For months, rumors circulated that L.A. Reid would be leaving his post at Island Def Jam for TV, and reports yesterday confirmed that Simon Cowell picked the executive for his X-Factor show.

Reid accepted the offer and vacated his position. Today he wrote a farewell letter to his staff and friends at his former label.

To my Island Def Jam family:
After much consideration, I have decided to leave my position as Chairman of the Island Def Jam Music Group.
I have always thrived on growth and the next great challenge, and I look forward with much enthusiasm to what the future holds.
I am extremely proud of our beautiful roster and all we have accomplished in my seven years with IDJ. We continue to have incredible success together with today’s most phenomenal superstars – Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Bon Jovi, Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, Rick Ross, The Killers, The-Dream, Chrisette Michele, Jeezy and Ludacris to name a few.
I want to thank all of you for your amazing contributions.

With Warm Regards –


[Miss Info]
